On the Needles Friday - Nov. 2nd

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for On the Needles Friday. I have a couple finishes to share from this week and a few from last month that I've been waiting to show off.

First what is actually on the needles right now is the cardigan for one of my nieces. I finished the right front and cast on the sleeves this week. When I need a break from the sleeves, I'm going to block the back and two fronts and get them together. Glad this is child's cardigan and not an adult, sleeves really slow me down, even if I knit two at a time.

My first finish this week was this pair of socks. I used the free Faux Cable Socks pattern by Jen of Knitting Like Crazy. She is starting a free mystery shawl next Friday on ravelry if you are interested. I love this sock pattern and might have to make it again and again.

I had enough yarn leftover from the socks to make a little hat. Here it is on my fist. It is the Easy Peasy newborn hat pattern you can find for free, here.

Here it is on one of my son's buddies. 

And here are the finishes from October that I have been waiting to share. A baby cardigan. Pattern found here.

So, if you haven't figured it out, we are expecting a baby. Due the end of April, I am finding it hard to focus on Christmas knitting. I just want to knit cute little baby things. And they work up so fast. I'm already planning what baby patterns I'm taking with me on our Christmas holidays, because once the gift knitting is done, it will be all baby stuff. This is our third child and although I knew how to knit, I never knit my other children anything when they were babies; I did crochet them both blankets. I'm really looking forward to knitting all the baby patterns I've put in my ravelry favourites just in case. I've made a deal with myself that for every gift I finish, I can cast on a baby project but I don't know if I'll be able to follow through with it.


  1. I think baby stuff is so cute.

  2. Knit whatever you feel like! Congratulations on your new baby.

  3. Love the cable socks I'll check out the pattern. The baby stuff is all adorable. Ann

  4. Wow, you have gotten a lot done, and so pretty as well.

  5. Congratulations! I love all the baby stuff and the socks are gorgeous!

  6. I love all your projects. I am just finishing my Easy Peasy Hat. I was not sure how the little tip at the end was supposed to look. I thought mine resembled a belly button and I was going to tink it. Maybe I will leave it there? The baby cardi is adorable! I will have to check that pattern out.

  7. Nice socks! Thanks for the link. Congrats on baby # 3 and happy knitting!
